New Chiropractic Film Completed
"Pain in America: The Silver Tsunami," which details the impending health care crisis created by the aging baby boomer population – and how chiropractic care can play a role in the solution – has been completed. According to producer Donald Barrett, in making the film, which Barrett says will air on PBS and is also available in DVD and audio-book format, "We recorded over 60 hours of interviews with Doctors of Chiropractic, educators, world-class researchers and one particularly renowned professor at Stanford University Medical School. After 10 months of production, we [have] a program I believe is the most comprehensive documentary ever made on the subject of chiropractic."
